We've come to expect a lot from this game. Not only do we expect to see a fantastic game played between two rival teams, we expect to be munching on good foods while we're watching.
This is an easy munching recipe for nuts that will go over well with your crowd. Though I'm posting the ingredients here, in the amount I used, feel free to adjust them to your taste. You may prefer more sweetness or more "kick", so add more or less to your taste. This is so easy you cannot mess up this recipe.
Chipotle Spiced Pecans
4 cups raw pecans
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 - 1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 Tablespoon Joe and Son's Chipotle Olive Oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
Spread the pecans out in one layer on a large baking sheet with sides. Roast the pecans for about 10 minutes, stirring at about 5 minutes of roasting.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients EXCEPT for the Chipotle Oil and salt.
Remove the pecans from the oven and place them in a large bowl. Add the sugar and spice mixture and stir to coat. Now drizzle the Chipotle Oil over the pecans, stir to coat well and add salt to taste. Stir once more.
Place the pecans on the baking sheet once again and roast at 250 degrees for another 5 minutes. Stir midway through and be careful they don't burn.
Cool and serve at room temperature.
